This important function of HR does not have recognition in Policies‟ statement.

Warid and Zong in the mobile phone sector. So if Mobilink go in backward integration and manufacture its own Sims it would give more edge to the company. They should also be more focused towards the quality of operations being carried on out their. it is the strategy to get the profits or benefits for short-run. Cost Cut Strategy Mobilink should use standardized technology and equipments in order to achieve low cost service process.
